As the first half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is set to hit theaters on November 19, 20-year old Emma Watson recently told London’s Sunday Times that she has enjoyed her legacy as Hermione Granger and that she wants to celebrate it instead of trying to move beyond it with edgier roles. In fact, Watson said that she is putting her foot down on two specific things – nudity and cocaine. Coincidentally, her upcoming cameo on Two and a Half Men was canceled.
Watson, who has been attending Brown University to feel normal and grounded, insists that she’s a strong actress who doesn’t need to shed her clothes for success. Oy New York Daily News, fancy a dismissive wank, guvna?
The British starlet added that she’s not “so paranoid or insecure” that she needs to shock others in order to convince them she can play a different role.
“I don’t want everyone to forget me as Hermione,” she told the magazine. “I’m really proud of her.”
But that doesn’t mean Watson is going to avoid taking risks entirely.
“I wished I’d done more naughty things,” she told the UK Sun of her time growing up on set. “Three months ago I cut my hair and at that moment I felt I became a woman.”
Yes, she cut her long hair ridiculously short so she looks like a 16-year old boy and now she finally feels like a woman. Whatever, at least she’s not complaining about being rich. Wait, what’s that, Reuters? She IS complaining about being absurdly filthy wealthy?
“By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get … serious. I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional. It was a real shock,” the actress told Vogue in the interview.
What did she think she was making when she was acting in all of these incredibly successful films? Skee ball tickets? If she’s so sick over her estimated $34 million fortune, then she should donate it to charity. For instance, my new “Home For Half-Naked, Coked Up Actresses.” Please make checks payable to CASH.
